The surprising ingredient in this delicious summer salad? Bacon. Bacon and seafood are prepared together more often than you might think, and in this dish, they make a perfect pair. Scallops toughen easily, so take care not to overcook them, but be sure to prepare the bacon so it’s nice and crispy.
For a wine pairing, we suggest a German or French Riesling. Rieslings are great with bacon and seafood and will bring body to the meal.
